One more question is it possible in "M" mode to add the function (to a button) to get a quick glance of the optimal values for aperture and speed, thereafter you can override this manually if needed. I loved this function on my G1X, it made manual mode a dream

No, but the exposure compensation display tells you how far away from the optimal exposure you are. It reads form +3ev to -3ev and flashes when you are beyond these limits. When the camera thinks you have it perfectly exposed it reads 0 .

Incidentally you can enable the option to have Auto ISO in manual mode.

Menu>Gears>E Exp/symbol/ISO>ISO-Auto = All

This shows Auto ISO as an option on the Control panel. You don't have to use it but it there if you want to.
